Editorial Reviews

Review

“The authors of [DSM-V] have used the umbrella term “autism spectrum disorder” (ASD), which combines the currently separate diagnoses of autism, Asperger’s syndrome, and pervasive developmental disorder. This change in no way diminishes the value of this book for clinicians who work with and teach about adults with psychiatric disorders. . . . I strongly recommend this book to any and all who deal with psychiatric patients and those who rightfully advocate for their treatment. . . . The section on psychotherapy . . . can help the therapist to understand what the patient needs and how to go about achieving it. The section on psychosocial aspects can provide information for patient advocates and others involved in the field about how limited the resources are and what is needed.” (Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease)

“[A]n important read not just for clinicians but for adults who are seeking diagnosis or who have attained diagnosis in adulthood. . . . [A] thoroughly documented text that will be valuable to clinicians seeking to provide support and interventions for adults on the mild end of the spectrum. . . . Research in how autism presents across the lifespan is lacking and many clinicians lack the expertise in recognizing how undiagnosed mild autism presents in adults. This book is a good solution, regardless of what we call the condition.” (Autism Blogs Directory)

“This book lives up to its name of Comprehensive Guide and may well become a standard text for understanding the complexity of Asperger’s Syndrome (AS) in adults . . . . I am in awe of Stoddart, Burke, and King for their in-depth knowledge of this difficult subject. . . . I highly recommend this book.” (The Milton H. Erickson Foundation Newsletter)

“Well written and highly readable . . . . [T]his volume will be invaluable for those clinicians who provide that care.” (Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders)

“[A] solid starting point for learning about Asperger Syndrome. Asperger Syndrome in Adulthood is unquestionably readable and undeniably exhaustive.” (PsychCentral)

“An outstanding addition to the literature. This volume is comprehensive in scope and is a valuable addition to the growing body of work on this topic.” (Fred R. Volkmar, MD, Irving B. Harris Professor and Director, Child Study Center, Yale; Chief of Child Psychiatry, Yale New Haven Hospital)

Asperger Syndrome in Adulthood represents a very welcome addition to the current literature on what happens to individuals on the autism spectrum after they graduate from high school or college. Maintaining an evidence-based perspective, the authors address a wide range of issues, including some controversial ones, in way that is accurate, accessible, and very applicable to the promotion of quality-of-life concerns. A very useful volume.” (Peter F. Gerhardt, EdD, Chair, Scientific Council for the Organization for Autism Research; Director, McCarton Upper School)

“An invaluable resource for parents and clinicians alike. This book fills an important and neglected niche in our understanding of Asperger Syndrome. It is written with both clarity and compassion.” (Dr. Peter Szatmari, MD, Professor, Dept. of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences; Director, Offord Centre for Child Studies; and Head, Division of Child Psychiatry, McMaster University)

She has been previously employed by several agencies providing clinical services to individuals with developmental disabilities, their families and the agencies that support them.

He attained certification in Family Medicine at Queen’s University (Kingston, Ontario), practiced as a Family Physician in northern Ontario, and then returned to the University of Western Ontario (London, Ontario) to complete his training in Psychiatry in 1993. He has since worked primarily in rural underserved areas of Ontario assisting in the development of innovative program designs, with a biopsychosocial perspective. He emphasizes the need to operationalize signs and symptoms of mental health concerns and objective monitoring systems to assess improvements in quality of life in response to treatment recommendations. He is currently consultant to the only Assertive Community Treatment Team in Canada exclusively supporting individuals with dual diagnosis (ACT-DD, Brockville Mental Health Centre) as well as Pathways to Independence (Brockville, Ontario), Kerry’s Place Autism Service (Aurora Ontario), and Community Living agencies in northwestern Ontario.

Isn't only about Aspergers - covers all high functioning autism. The information is presented so us laypeople can understand it if you read around all the references listed contained throughout the text. I found it so informative (and not overly technical) that I ordered several additional copies for other family members.

I know this book isn't intended for casual reading, so it is no surprise it is a bit dense. Still I haven't read many books about Autism and Asperger Syndrome that were as packed with enlightenment, yet easy to read. I looked forward to its release for quite some time, but was not so enthusiastic about it by the time I was well into the middle. If you are wanting a quick immersion into the subject I'd recommend Tony Atwood's stuff first. This book is probably quite a bit more up to date though.

This book exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend it.

It explains how to check whether you are suffering from AD or not.
